Anjolie Ela Menon | By the River
19 Aug 2021 - 18 Sep 2021
35 Great Jones Street
New York, NY 10012
is proud to present By the River
, a major New York solo exhibition by renowned Indian painter Anjolie Ela Menon
. Throughout a career now spanning over fifty years, Menon has steadfastly remained a pioneering figurative painter, often in defiance of current trends. Her work metamorphosizes the visual matrix of our times through her use of a renaissance-like technique, which has earned her the sobriquet of ‘Wanton Fabulist’ from New Delhi based curator and critic Gayatri Sinha. The exhibition features a series of pastoral landscape paintings coupled with tender portraits – all realized through a period of isolation borne of the global lockdown. Menon invokes the wholesomeness of touch and intimacy as a way to heal from the isolation and uncertainty of her surroundings. We sincerely hope you can join us at the opening reception.
